The SimpleLink CC26x2 Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a complete package for the development of multi-standard, Bluetooth® Low Energy, Zigbee®, Thread, and 802.15.4-based applications for the CC2652 wireless MCU.
Bluetooth Low Energy
The SimpleLink™ CC26x2 Software Development Kit (SDK) includes the Texas Instruments royalty-free Bluetooth low energy (BLE) software protocol stack (BLE5-Stack) component supporting development of single-mode Bluetooth 5 applications on the ARM® Cortex®-M4F based SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC2642R wireless MCU and SimpleLink Multi-Standard CC2652 wireless MCU. The BLE5-Stack includes all necessary software, sample applications and documentation to quickly get started with the development of standalone and network processor BLE applications. Refer to the feature set below and SDK release notes for a detailed description of the features available in this SDK.
The SimpleLink CC26x2 SDK includes tools, application examples, documentation and source code of the Thread 1.1 networking protocol based on openthread (github.com/openthread/openthread), an open-source implementation of the Thread networking stack. Example applications such as a door lock, window shades, thermostat and temperature sensor applications, based on Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) running atop of the Thread networking stack are released to kick-start the SW design of end equipment sets. Additionally, the SimpleLink CC26x2 SDK includes a Command-Line Interface (CLI) application and a Network Co-Processor (NCP) implementation, which can be used in combination with a host Thread border-router agent software as a whole Thread border router reference solution (https://github.com/openthread/borderrouter).
The SimpleLink CC26x2 SDK supports a Zigbee solution, delivered as plugin, which runs on the SimpleLink MCU framework (TI-RTOS, CCS). The Zigbee plugin contains everything needed for a Zigbee compliant solution, including tools, application examples, documentation, and source code. It also includes a Zigbee Pro compliant Zigbee stack, as well as example applications such as door lock, light, switch, temperature sensor and thermostat. Sample applications are Zigbee certification-ready.
The Zigbee plugin also includes support for Zigbee Network Processor configuration, which can be used in two chip architectures where the host implements the Cluster Library and the Zigbee applications.
This release is available royalty-free to select customers using TI’s SimpleLink Multi-Standard CC2652 wireless MCU and runs on TI’s CC2652 LaunchPad™ development kit.
The CC26x2 SDK and its connectivity components are based on the SimpleLink™ MCU platform, a TI-home grown SW development framework described as below.
TI 15.4 Stack
The TI 15.4-Stack is an IEEE 802.15.4-based star topology networking solution for the 2.4 GHz band. This stack can be used as a foundation MAC layer to build complete IoT stacks on.
